Meghan Markle has handcuffed Harry once again — ordering the Prince not to attend the Royal Family’s traditional Christmas hunt, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
Markle’s hunting-happy husband didn’t turn up at the pheasant hunt last year at his animal rights activist wife’s demands, and now sources say
he will also be swerving this year’s event after Markle blasted: “It’s a disgusting tradition.”

Instead of attending the hunt, he will stay at pregnant Markle’s side while dad Prince Charles and brother William take to the moors around their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.
William’s wife Kate Middleton – a skilled marks-woman – is likely to join the men on the hunt, which will seal the growing rift between the duchesses.

Harry’s decision not attend last year’s hunt on December 26 – known as Boxing Day in the UK – stunned senior blue bloods and gamekeepers.
Ex-British Army captain Harry – a veteran of Afghanistan – has been taking part in the blood sport since he was 12.
But the new Duchess of Sussex is “sickened” at what she sees as the “cruel” tradition of blasting “helpless birds” out of the sky.

A palace insider told Radar: “Meghan is pushing Harry to make excuses as to why he won’t be able to attend this year. She’s likely to succeed again, and Royal aides fear it shows further signs of her power in Royal circles.
“Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and despises hunting in any form. But Harry loves it and had always been out there on Boxing Day – until she came along.
“But if it means breaking with long-standing Royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, he is prepared to do so to keep her happy.”
